Gunnar, similar issues has been reported to us regarding CIR; however we tested this feature using a TSGH-IR02 remote control on a D54250WYK NUC and CIR worked just fine on a Windows environment.
Some recommendations we can give are the following:
- Make sure you have the latest driver installed https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=23218&lang=eng
- Also the latest BIOS. However if you do not have BIOS v0024, please check on the following list which is the next version available for your product. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Desktop+Boards&ProductLine=Intel%C2%AE+NUC+Boards+and+Kits&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+NUC+Board+D54250WYB&ProdId=3743&LineId=3736&FamilyId=36&DownloadType=BIOS
Which operating system are you using?
I have been running my new NUC D54250WYKH for a month now, and I have yet to learn what the CIS Consumer Infrared Sensor is or does. I can find nothing in the NUV+C Specs Guide, nothing at intel.com, endless googling yields no information about it, and Wikipedias entry on "infrared sensor" is useless vis-a-vis the NUC.
I have successfully installed the driver SIO_CIR_win7_20120801_2.7.1005.
Where can I learn what it is and what it does?
Hello Phuio, thanks a lot for posting your question at Intel communities.
CIR is not an Intel technology but in simple words it is a feature that allows you to use a remote control with your NUC.
You can turn on and off your device and you may be able to use it while on Windows.
Additional information can be found on these sites Infrared - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hi @sylvia_intel, those links you provided in your last post have nothing to so with Infrared!
What is being asked for by the previous posters is perfectly reasonable.
Does the IR sensor show itself as a standard HID device to Windows?
This is very important to me as it will be the deciding factor as to whether to purchase a NUC.
I have a D54250WYK.
I want to turn it on using the CIR feature.
How do I do this? So far, no one has any answers. CIR or consumer infrared is a generic term used for all consumer IR remote control. The term does not say which of the many protocols, carrier frequencies or input methods the device will use.
I think everyone is getting pretty irritated that Intel have not answered the question. Does no one there have the answers to the following:
- What carrier frequency (36 kHz, 38 kHz ..... 455 kHz)?
- What protocol? RC5, RECS-80, raw manchester encoding etc... there are hundreds.
- How is this exposed to the user side? Is it configurable? Is there any way to use it? Is there a OS API? Third party app? etc....
From what I have gathered so far. Windows media centre has some undocumented/proprietary way of talking to the hardware which allows you to control it. Unfortunately for the 999,999,999 in a billion users (pretty much all of us); We do not use windows media centre and, even if we did, we don't have a windows remote. So for all of us..... Please explain why the CIR sensor is listed as a feature on the PC spec by telling us how to use it?
